“I’m so tired, I just poured coffee into my cereal bowl.” - Brian
Me: I think I’ll go to bed early tonight. I’m pooped!
Grace: When I poop my diaper, my mom changes me.
Gracie told my mom a creative story that went something like this:
G: One time I was a bug and I flew into the playhouse.
Mom: Really? What color bug were you?
G: I had red eyes and purple wings. I was beautiful! And then one time I was a tree frog and I lived in that tree. I had sticky fingers. And when I was Diego I had a power pack and I saved animals. And then I turned into me.
Kaylee: I think I’ll study animals when I grow up. (almost 5 yr)
A couple days later she randomly said, “I want to be a farmer when I grow up.”
Grace: My legs are full from that yogurt. (She jumps on my lap) Why are you wearing glasses?
Me: So I can see. (smooch, smooch, smooch) Why are you so sweet?
Grace: Because I’m full of that yogurt!
Kaylee commenting on a public bathroom: “It smells like a hippopotamus went poopy in here!”
On Father’s Day Joshua wondered, “When is it Happy Brother’s Day?”
Kaylee: “Everyone in the whole world has different middle names!”
Me: “Actually, some people have the same middle name, like Daddy and Joshua.”
Kaylee: “What? You mean his name is DADDY PAUL TRAGER?”
Joshua to Grace: NO!!!! Don’t drink that! It’s warm and you could get sick and die!!!”
Me: Joshua, cut it out. She can drink that if she wants.
Joshua: No! It really happened to me!
Me: You died? When you drank warm water?
Joshua: (exasperated) Mo-oooom, I told you I’m not like other people.
Grace: Look at the moon! It’s broken. (it was a half moon)
Kaylee: I love you *this* much! (stretching her arms out)
Me: I love you to the moon and back.
Kaylee: I love you up to God and back.
Grace: I’m a big girl! (after a successful trip to the potty)
Brian: Do you want to be a big girl or to be “daddy’s little girl” forever?
Grace: (thought for a moment) Daddy’s girl forever!!!!
